Message from the Chair of Governors

Thank you for taking the time to look at our school website, and our Governors' page in particular. As Chair of Governors,  I work  closely with the Headteacher and staff at Milford Primary School, as well as with the other governors, in an effort to continually improve the teaching and learning experience of our children. We are there as representatives of all parents, staff members and interested members of our community.

The role of the governing body is a strategic and monitoring one rather than being involved in the day to day running of the school and can be likened to that of the board of directors within a company. The governing body has a statutory duty to oversee the policies and direction of the school, to monitor its standards and be held to account for its conduct and performance.  All governors are expected  to have a good understanding of the school; its strengths and weaknesses and how it functions and operates in order to suport the  headteacher and staff and ask challenging questions, offer support and advice and also constructive criticism where appropriate.

If you would like to know more about our work or ask any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
